Recently, we asked a question on our Facebook page: how did you save up for your first motorcycle? Your answers – and your photos – made us nostalgic for our own early days of saving our pennies and dreaming of our first motorcycle. Timothy Crump set aside money he made working at a grocery store after school, and this picture of him from 1969 is classic. Many of you knew you wanted a motorcycle when you were still young, so you took on any and all odd jobs to buy some two-wheeled freedom. David Lowe cut grass around his neighborhood. Curtis Botzet, as a 12 year old, baled hay and fed cows on a neighbor’s farm for the $250 he needed to get a Yamaha XT250. “Paper route” was one of the most common answers, too. Dan Bader used the money from his paper route to get a Honda ST 90. At only 14 years old, James Sullivan worked a summer job to save up the $100 it cost for a 1965 Honda with a 65cc motor. Now 60, James is still riding, though we suspect he’s gone up in engine size since that first ride. Lawrence Jojola got a job at Uncle Cliff’s Amusement Park in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He used the money to buy a 1972 Honda 100, then turned it into his commuter ride. Seventeen-year-old John Koboroff was clearly excited when he finally had enough money to buy a Yamaha YDS3 250 in 1970. How did you save up for your first motorcycle?
